July 24-August 17: The Candy Store

A colorful exhibit is transforming VisArts at Rockville into a sweet shop. In The Candy Store, artist Jackie Hoysted decorates the walls with vibrant, rectangular paintings coated in a sugary layer of bubbling wax and arranges circular encaustic pieces to resemble a “pick ‘n’ mix” station. The candy-colored wood panels are infused with sweet-smelling oils that fill the gallery space with bubblegum, sweet apple and tutti frutti aromas. You can see and smell the artwork through August 17.

July 24-August 16: The Campsite Rule

The Washington Rogues present Alexandra Petri’s new comedy The Campsite Rule at Anacostia Playhouse through August 16.

Despite their significant age difference, what starts out as a one-night stand quickly grows into an extra credit opportunity, as Susan resolves to educate her young paramour in the ways of sex and romance.
